NORTH ADAMS, Mass. - Louis G. Nejaime, 46, passed away on Friday, Aug. 18, 2017, after battling long-term illness.
Louis was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, on Oct. 6, 1970, to Noel "Theresa" and the late George Rached Nejaime.
Louis was a graduate of Hoosac Valley High School.
He worked in the family business, G. Nejaime's Cheshire Center store for 25 years with his family. Everyone knew who Louis was and enjoyed frequenting the store. Louis was also an EMT for the volunteer fire department.
In 2011, Louis married his wife, Maria, and moved to Hartwick. He became a step-father to Katherine and William Reisen.
Louis had a heart-felt desire to serve and help others. His work had him seeing people daily and sharing his faith in God with them.
Louis worked for Scholet Furniture, as a CNA, and for the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Louis attended Community Bible Chapel in Toddsville, where he grew each day in his love and understanding of the Lord Jesus Christ; coming to know Jesus as his Lord and Savior. We rejoice in knowing that Louis is now in His presence.
Louis is survived by his mother; wife; five sisters and their families, Feriale and Louis Yan, Amale and Christopher Neary, Marie and Michael McCarron, Rima and Lloyd Georgeson and Nadia Nejaime; two step- children, Katherine and William; three nieces, Tara, Kaitlyn and Tessa; as well as seven nephews, Andrew, Alex, David, Zachary, Christopher Adam and Blake, all of whom Louis loved dearly.
